Teen Reads Book Club

CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

This is not your typical Teen Book Club where everyone reads the same book and then discusses it. Instead, it's about teens getting together every month (2nd Tuesday of every month at 4 pm) to discuss what they’ve been reading, what their favorite books are, get recommendations from each other, and a chance to chat and hang out with other teens who like to read.
